I dont understand it. Black people, esp teen males, eat more fast food than should be legal. is it a soul food replacement thing? i live in the south and every day this astonishes me. I mean, McDonalds could not be worse, there are cheaper and better options, and yet this *&^% is still trolled.

As luck would have it, the Black community discussed this around three weeks ago. We decided, by a slim margin, that starting on January 1, 2007, we are all going vegetarian. The official announcement is scheduled to take place after the fourth of July--must have our last rib festival, na'mean?. Right now we are setting up the infrastructure for this endeavor. Please know that from this day forward, all those black teens are slowly approaching their last happy meals, supersized fries, and 70 piece nuggets. Wish us luck because we'll need it. Do not forget to leave some hummus for us.

Stan, I think we need a Steve Butabi vs. Chocolate Moose fight to the death thread.

Um, excuse me, the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of Black people were late to that meeting, so we missed the discussion about the announcement and the secretary hasn't sent us the minutes yet. We were planning to announce it after the Juneteenth celebration, you know, since it represents emancipation and all. 

Additionally, the "White T Boys" from Southeast, requested that they still be allowed to eat mambo sauce and wings, as they can get those for real cheap from the Chinese takeout on the corner. George, can you please check with the white leader of the black race and tell the rest of us what he thinks about eating wings?

Thank you.

Now for a more serious answer to what could be a legitimate queestion (though I'm not certain if they actually do consume more fast food). Think of socio-economic factors, and think also of marketing and geographical mapping, and of how fast food chains pick the locations for their stores. Now think also of how large supermarket chains plan their marketing and of where they set up their stores.

Do you see the outline of a possible answer to your question?

You were not alone. Every chapter was late. Just another thing about us Black people. I'll have comments about this at the next meeting. My limo had a jacked-up tire, so I'm excused. BTW, I ran into Bill Clinton at McD's, but that's a story for another time, Holla!

The White Leader of the Black race (TWLBR) isn't overly concerned about this problem right now. TWLBR has a Whole Foods® in his neghborhood, so it's not that serious, and prefers to focus on spinning the Cynthia McKinney thing.

About those notes...You should have been on time. The young lady who transcribes our sessions is out getting her hair and nails done. I'll have her fax you when she gets back. Chances are she'll pop in to see Madea before coming back to the office.

As Senator for the Northeast Chapter of Black People, I must report to the Spokesperson the complaints of my constituents at the last meeting.  First of all, we request that the Spokesperson implement the nationwide ban on jerry curls that was enacted in 1985 - there are far too many members from the other regions who fail to follow this legislation.  At least can we get them to respect the rule at the next meeting?  Further, the members of the Northeast would like the following terms of art added to the national vocabulary:

1. Word
2. Smash
3. That's Wsup
4. And the following adjectives "Dumb", "Mad", and "Crazy" when making reference to any extreme amount of anything

We would also like to propose legislation to require the rest of the regions to recognize the Timberland as the official shoe of Black people, and would like to replace "Lift Every Voice and Sing" with Wu-Tang's "Attack of the Killer B's" or Jay-Z's "What More Can I Say" off the black album. Thank you.

P.S. we're still waiting for the minutes also.
